Our student services staff are dedicated to making your studies as smooth as possible. Running workshops, providing study support and helping you find somewhere to live, they are there to help you achieve your goals and launch your career.
Recognising that student guidance and support is key to student success, we ensure each student has regular meetings with their tutors as well as Student Support staff. Academic and personal mentoring from NZSE staff includes literacy and academic skills as well as financial advice, budgeting and personal development.
The NZSE Student Mentoring Programme identifies experienced students who are able to mentor new students requiring academic or personal support. Mentors relate well because they share similar experiences and can provide support, guidance and practical help.
CULTURE AND COLLABORATION AT NZSE
We believe one of the greatest lessons is how to live and work comfortably in a multicultural environment. A melting pot of diversity, we welcome your beliefs, thoughts and ideas. You will find student groups which offer you the opportunity to join something familiar or explore differences.
